63.085 [B&F: 1300] Crambus pratella (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

Nationally scarce (Nb) on dry grassland in parts of the British Isles. In southern Hampshire, apparently very rare and local, and since 1980 recorded from just half-a-dozen sites, including Hurn, North Gorley and Ashurst; last recorded in northern Hampshire in 1999 at Fleet. Not recorded from the Isle of Wight to date. Wingspan 22-25 mm. Can be confused only with the rather smaller C. lathoniellus, in which the median longitudinal streak is narrower with the anterior edge straight, not angulated [Goater]. Larva feeds within roots and lower stems of various grasses.
